In order for you to understand the pain of suicide and depression, I want to create a short film on how depression leads to suicide, and how we who do not have depression, fail to notice it and how we can better prepare for it. For you to truly understand how serious this topic is, I am hoping to make an official production short film with cinematic cameras, actors, props, gear etc. This way, you can truly experience what it’s like to lose someone to suicide, and better prepare for it. For this movie to be the most impactful it can be, we need the money to actually create it. Sadly, I cannot afford making a high quality movie without your help. And I believe that I need to make this happen so that I can make the greatest impact and hopefully change people’s perspectives on depression and suicide. So I have put my blood, sweat and tears into this website, where I can help spread my sister’s message through art, while also raising money to create this short film and raise awareness for suicide and depression. All the profits will be going into the funding for this short film, as well as our Non-Profit, The Stav Reuven Project, which supports Non-Traditional forms of therapy for children, teenagers, and young adults. We want Stav to make the difference that she’s always wanted to make, and we need you. All of you. We need to work together, and at the end, we can finally look back and say that we did it. So if you don’t mind, I would love it if you could explore our website, and hopefully buy a piece of my sister’s art, which will contribute in bringing us one step closer to changing the world. This way, Stav is making an impact through her art, while also changing the perspective of her community.
Something we all have access to 24/7 is our cellphones, many of us use our cellphones against our benefit and it is time to change that as cellphones are a big factor to our mental health. Most teenagers often use their phones to scroll through social media and check on what others are doing, but very often to check on themselves. Often, we as teenagers don’t take care of the technological aspect of our mental health because of all the distractions that come into play when having a cellphone. What is currently helping me get through my sister’s passing as well as other important places in my life, is reassurance and manifestations. Often, we very rarely get that reassurance whether it is our family, friends or even ourselves. Many of us feel uncared for, so I am creating The Stav Reuven Project as a way for people to keep a positive mental health, and to take care of themselves through a simple message. When we manifest something to occur in our future as if it were already done, this subconsciously tells our brain to take action on it. So we at SKOOLIEZ are partnering up with Community.com to reach as many of you as possible and keep our days positive and bright. The messaging system will consist of daily manifestations, motivation and positive quotes all throughout the day to keep our minds positively wired. Especially for those who are having a harder day can benefit from this messaging system, as it will be active 24/7.
In honor of my sister Stav Reuven, a portion of the profits raised from our SKOOLIEZ website and donations will be donated to our Stav Reuven Scholarship with the intention to help a student graduating Fremont High School and attending college in 2021-22 get financial aid. 2 successful applicants will each receive a $500 SKOOLIEZ Scholarship in Stav’s name. However, we are happy to say that we are taking a different approach in the grant of this scholarship. Our goal with SKOOLIEZ, is to make the world a kinder and more compassionate place. A place where people feel safe and welcome. So, this scholarship will be solely based on your kindness and compassionate contribution to the world. In a 2 minute video, we would like to see how you’ve been making the world a better place, whether it's at school, to the community, or family etc.
How to Apply?
You will be submitting a 2 minute video displaying your contribution to the community through kindness and compassion.
The video should include:
How and what you have been doing to make this world a kinder place. how you’ve been helping others while also explaining how you’ve been growing along the way. Describe your passions and goals for your future and how you will continue spreading kindness and helping others in the process. The most valuable lesson you learned during quarantine, and how others can also use your profound knowledge. Your overall reassuring advice to the audience, what is kindness to you? And what can others take away from that message?
The main focus of this video should be what you are doing. No crazy editing skills are required, a simple 2 minute iMovie edit is perfectly fine. Please provide a voiceover with video footage/photos of your contributions and kind acts. Lasty, be creative and be yourself! The successful applicant will be someone who exudes the SKOOLIEZ spirit.
The scholarship is open to all Fremont High School Seniors who will be attending college in 2021-22. This Scholarship is not based on your financial situation or GPA, so no need to worry about grades or submitting any financial information, but is solely based on your contribution and kindness to the world.
HOW TO SUBMIT: Please submit your video along with your contact information, to The Stav Reuven Scholarship as an MP4 or QuickTime file to my Email here: email@example.com with the subject as (Stav Scholarship 21- Your Name). Upon submission, all videos become the property of SKOOLIEZ and may be posted on our website, social media, or other public forum.
DEADLINE: MAY 27, 2021
Animal Assisted Therapy
The benefits of animal-based therapy have been well documented. According to the Mayo Clinic, animal-assisted therapy can significantly reduce pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue in people who suffer from a range of medical and mental health issues.
As a complementary form of therapy, animal-assisted treatment is heralded as one of the most effective means of helping individuals cope with a number of health conditions. Other researchers found similar patterns among patients who use AAT to aid in a number of disorders, including Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, developmental disabilities, Down’s Syndrome, anxiety and depression.
